The Rangers cannot afford RoR with McDonagh and Stepan due for new contracts. It just can't happen. You could make the argument for trading Gaborik or buying out Richards but that doesn't really solve your problem because those players have to be replaced. You certainly don't have another gaborik in the minor leagues. Kreider and Miller are not ready to replace Gaborik/Richards. And whatever is on the free agent market is going to want similar money to what you were paying richards and gaborik anyways. The move for RoR does not make sense.

Sit tight and go get a veteran at the deadline who has an expiring contract.
